Charged with Robbery
A robbery accusation is very serious in Canada. Robbery is the illegal taking of property from someone else’s personal possession by using violence or intimidation. Robbery is categorized as either aggravated robbery, armed robbery, or simple robbery. A robbery charge is typically an indictable offence and carries various penalties which may include:
- 2 – 10 year prison sentence
- Severe fines
- Restitution to the victim
In addition, if you are convicted of robbery in Canada, you will lose your rights to purchase or have in your possession any type of firearm. A robbery conviction could also affect your future employment opportunities and overall reputation within your community. You need to protect yourself and your future by hiring an aggressive criminal defense attorney immediately.
